    QQ for anyone that has used 10 meal on AP, if you spend less than 10, do you keep the change on the app, like a gift card?

    What does it say on the voucher/giftcard ...? I will go and check

    PEx - e-gift tandcs say if only part of a card is used, a new one should be issued to the value of the balance (https://www.pizzaexpress.com/Terms-and-Conditions-Pages/eGift).

    Mands - use only once, transaction must be equal to or greater than giftcard value

    C0sta - normal e-gift, balance remains on card

    Gweggs - use only once, balance lost if not spent in one transaction

    20 meal - use only once, must be equal to or greater than voucher value

    10 dining out - no change, balance stays on card for next time

    HouseofF - no change, balance stays on card for 24 months after last use

    PCW/Curry - assume same as HouseofF as I don!!!8217;t have one to check

    I think that covers them all. Please let me know if any errors.

    Good morning all, rained overnight but dry at the moment

    Congratulations hampydoodums, exciting times

    Sorry your op was cancelled Di, but quite honestly would not want to be in hospital at the moment, heard of a few winter vomiting bugs being round and the flu is meant to be raising it's ugly head! Maybe it is fate keeping you away from something even more horrible. Fingers crossed it gets rearranged quickly.

    Good morning beautiful people
    Advice please
    If taking an item back for refund. Is it best before or after apg claimed ? Tia it was an unwanted gift tia
    Originally posted by mrs lds
    Most stores will mark your receipt after a return.

    If a member of staff is involved in processing the apg some will mark the receipt.

    If your apg is below 20 then you can process on SS in most cases without staff involvement, and your receipt will be unmarked for a return.

    Personally, I would probably process the apg then a return.

    In either case, a marked receipt would make me feel more conscious of doing the other.

    Louj, don't let this blip take the shine off your son's new jacket. He sounds like a lovely helpful lad.
    Refunds normally go back in your account quicker than you think.

    Morning peeps.

    I have to agree. It is weird how different shops process refunds, whenever I have one in Ts it is processed on the same day, and shows on the same day on the statement, so it is obviously easy enough done.

    Lou, I personally would complain to head office, especially if you were not handed the card unit, surely they should have made sure you could see how much you were paying! I think maybe you should concentrate as much on that as the slowness of the refund,.

    For those looking for a new Droid phone, this may be the best deal at the moment for a phone with NFC and minimum Android 4.4 Kitkat os (please post if a better deal found):

    Sim Free Alcatel U5 4G Mobile Phone - Black / Grey
    http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7348105

    Argos have this at 64.99 on offer. Note this specific U5 4g, the cheaper/other version does not have NFC, this one mentions it in the spec on Argos site.

    If you go through VC today they are offering 10 Argos voucher back on a 50 spend. This makes it effectively 54.99.

    Not as good as the A3 deal in November/December but I cannot see better at the moment?

    Note this is not a recommendation, I have no knowledge of the phone I was just seeing what the cheapest nfc phone was I could find.

    Havent said anything earlier but have some fantastic news to share. DS and his gf are expecting a baby in June. They didnt think she could have children so this has come as a complete surprise to them. So sweet, bless them. Shes had a few scans now and all is fine, theyre pretty sure its a boy .

    They live in Spain so DH, DD2, DGD1 and I have booked flights to go out and see them next month .

    Dont want to tempt fate so not taking any baby bits out there yet but it hasnt stopped me buying them .

    Mothercare have a fab sale on, loads of stuff in the clearance just depends on what each store has to clear so going further afield tomorrow to have a nosey in a larger store.

    I know how you are feeling as my DSis has been trying for a baby for the last few years and unfortunately had 6 miscarriages. She had numerous tests and they couldnt find anything wrong. She is now 6 months pregnant and all going well so far. I have been passing on the baby bargains posted on here and the other sites. So exciting

    Morning all
